It's standard. Only SunOS 4.x came with the K&R cc. SunOS 5.x simply doesn't come with one, since there's no inherent need for it. It's not so different from now, if you think in the right terms. The standard compiler has always cost extra; you just used to be able to get away with using the kernel compiler if your code was limited enough. :) -- -D. NSIT University of Chicago
